Georgia On My Mind: CSUS Palette Look #3

The name says it all ... it has been about ten years since I went to Atlanta to visit my grandmother and family there ... and I really love it there. Watching a documentary about Stone Mountain today and it reminded me of the fact that we had my birthday there several years when I was growing up. I hope to go back sometime.

All brushes are MAC unless otherwise stated. Enjoy!

  1. Erin, I have changed to Mac because of your looks, This is another must have, I love it.

    What is your Basic Face Routine. I am sure it is here somewhere but cannot fined it.
    Colene Watson

  2. I wish peaches looked as good on me as they do on you

  3. Just wondering cause it had been a while since I'd been here (sorry) but are you no longer wearing BE?

  4. Colene - Hey girly!!! My basic face routine changes a bit from day to day but it is either BE foundation in Fairly Light and MV or it is MAC Studio Sculpt foundation and MV ... just depends on how long I have because the SS takes longer than the BE foundation to put on. Also included in that is my brows ... I use a sephora dark brown brow powder and a MAC 208 brow brush.

    Denise - I am still using BE foundation most days ... and ALWAYS use MV as I haven't found another finisher that I like as much. I still love my BE eye colours ... but have discovered that they just take SO DANG long to get good colour payoff that I rarely reach for them. Hopefully this summer when time really doesn't matter on doing the makeup I will break them out again.

    I do still use my buxoms (Krystal everyday) and their lip liners when I need to ...


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
